*K-6th grades will be using the Curriculum
Life With God
published by Good Dirt Ministries written by Lacy Borgo.
This curriculum is different because it is about true connection.
Entertainment has become the fast and sterile substitute for the
hard work of relationships. Children are hungry for relationships.
They come into this world looking for connections. For this reason,
this curriculum has not been written to entertain. Instead it’s been
written to give children what they need, what they really want,
and what they have been asking for if we were listening –
relationship. Relationship with the adults who love them and
relationship with Jesus who loved them so much he gave his life
for them. That’s not to say that there won’t be fun, or laughter, or the exhilarating
sense of celebration. Life With God is full of these emotions. Our focus is connection,
both to God and to each other, because that is what we are all seeking no matter
how old we are.

A chance to delve deeper and discuss together the practice of Discernment (Pastor Stephanie's sermon theme recently). We'll be addressing the question, "Can we really hear God?" and reading scriptures on: Conversing with God; A Relational View of God; The Bible's Role in a Conversational Life with God; The Still, Small Voice; Listening for God; Hearing the Unexpected; and Co-laborers with God. This 6-week study is based on the book Hearing God by Dallas Willard (not required reading). Everyone will receive a Study Guide-book written by Jan Johnson.
2) Excellence A study in the book of Jeremiah (Nov/Dec)
Discussion Leader: Pastor Stephanie BEGINS: NOVEMBER 6
Every day, we must choose whether to live cautiously or courageously, to follow the crowd or to embrace God's purposes. God invites us to live at our best, to pursue righteousness, to drive toward true excellence. In this six-session Bible study, beloved pastor Eugene Peterson draws from the story of the prophet Jeremiah to explore what a life of excellence looks like. Like Jeremiah, we may feel inadequate and weary, but God wants to empower us to grow in obedience, integrity, and endurance.
